Pink House

Allow me to tell you about our pink house.
Let’s see if I can paint you an accurate mental picture.
Sit back; close your eyes….no wait, don’t close your eyes…then you couldn’t read this…..

Starting over…..
Allow me to tell you about our pink house.
Let’s see if I can paint you a mental picture.

When we first moved in:
The driveway and sidewalk were stained pink.
The house itself was painted pink.
The roof tiles are pink.
The double front doors were pink.
There were two hibiscus ‘trees’ flanking the front door that were….you guessed it, pink!
The tile on the outside front foyer is pink.

Let’s step inside shall we?
The inside tiles are NOT pink but the grout IS pink.
The former owners kindly left us their entertainment center in the living room ….pink lacquer (with mirrors!)
The kitchen cabinets are white with pink knobs and pink Formica counter tops. The wallpaper in the kitchen is pink and purple.
The boy’s rooms had pink carpeting, pink wallpaper borders (even their son’s room….) and pink vertical blinds on the windows.
The master bedroom had the same pink vertical blinds and pink carpeting that leads into the master bath…that has pink tiles with maroon accents, a pink fake marble vanity top, pink tulip wallpaper and pink accents everywhere….knobs, window valance and a small wreath made out of broken sea shells spray painted pink, hung over the toilet to cover a dirty hand print where the former owner apparently steadied himself when he leaned over the toilet to pee…..

It’s like living inside a Pepto-Bismol bottle!!

You’ll notice I’ve mixed my verb tense in this commentary because some of those things are still pink, but we’re working on it.
Which brings me to yesterday……

We’ve finally started on the master bath remodel. Husband is scoping out his plans and options. Like how difficult it’s going to be to remove the God-awful wallpaper!!!

I realize this is the PINK HOUSE but please tell me this wasn't the original wall color!  


  1. I think you nailed it at the end OMG!!!!!!

  2. I would have thought you'd be tickled pink to live in an all pink house

  3. OMG....that reminds me of wallpaper we stripped off of the wall in our Cape house...

    Hope y'all have fun!

  4. sounds like all your are missing is a yardful of pink flamingoes!! :)

  5. I am sure I remember seeing a pic of pink flamingo's in your garden. I hope you kept that pink entertainment centre it sounds like a collector's piece.

  6. hahahaa, that sure is a pink dream you're living in :-D Good luck removing all the wallpaper!


I appreciate your comments!
